There are enhanced cleaning and hygiene measures in our courts to keep our people and participants safe. For more information, see: Health and Safety Information Factsheet for Jurors during COVID-19 Alert Level 1 [PDF, 155 KB] We recognise that COVID-19 may have impacted your work or financial situation, meaning it will be difficult for you to serve on a jury at the moment. If so, and you would like to delay jury service for now, please raise this in your response. Note that, if your application is accepted, you will likely be summonsed at a later date.
If you're unwell, please don't attend court. Please call 0800 COURTS (0800 268 787) for further instruction.
If you are coming to jury service or you're applying to put off or be excused from jury service, you can fill in the paper form you were sent with your jury summons letter or you can fill in an electronic copy of the form.
Put the form in the envelope you were sent with your jury summons letter and post it back. If it has a DX address, you can put it in a DX box or a NZ Post box. Find out more about DX boxes(external link) You can also scan and email your form. The email address will be on the form.
